Places in Goa that are Worth Visiting During Monsoons

Monsoon is a time when the beauty of Goa is enhanced with vast expanses of greenery, rivers flowing with abundance, rushing streams, waterfalls, and the soothing sounds of downpours. The 3 star hotels in Goa have significant reductions in tariffs around this time of the year as compared to other seasons, making stays in them affordable for tourists. Wet season arrives in this region during early June, which provides great respite for many after the sweltering heat of summers. There are several places where travellers can experience the magic of monsoons.
Among these spots is the Arvalem Falls, which descend from the Rudreshwar temple. Experienced swimmers can have an exciting time in the lake which forms at the bottom of Arvalem Falls as the gushing waters cascade from a height of about 70 feet. Dudhsagar Falls is yet another beautiful spot to visit during monsoons in Goa. Tourists can choose to stay in any of the 4 star hotels in Goa located close to it. The name 'Dudhsagar' literally translates as 'Sea of Milk' in the local language, and is derived from the appearance of foamy milk that it carries. Having an accommodation in any of the Goa 3 star hotels would give travellers the opportunity to visit these places, while enjoying some ultra-modern facilities during their stay.

Situated in the midst of enchanting green hills in Bicholim is the Mayem Lake, which is a fabulous picnic spot for travellers. Another lake visited by guests of Goa 4 star hotels and backpackers staying in budget hotels alike, is the Carambolim Lake. Its surroundings wear a green cover during the monsoons, and it is the most sought-after destinations of migratory birds. Kesarval and Pomburpa, the two natural springs in Goa known for their medicinal properties, can also be visited by tourists during the monsoons.
